The story of Andrei Borzenko, a Soviet boxer who passed through the Buchenwald concentration camp, is a real-life confirmation that the fortitude of the human spirit can work wonders. Borzenko conducted more than 80 bouts and was never defeated, even though he had to exist in horrible conditions that were practically incompatible with life. The film shows the resilience and patriotism of Soviet people during the World War II. The documentary film includes scenes from the life of the characters, played out by the actors as a reconstruction of real events and supplemented with stories told by relatives and friends of the main character.
